  The evolution of the Common User Access Workplace Model - Technical IBM Systems Journal - Find Articles
Discussed are the key architectural and design elements of the CUA Workplace Model, the fundamental shifts in computer-human interaction that have occurred since the first publication of the guidelines in 1987, and how user interface design, operating systems, and tools have interacted in the evolution of the guidelines.
User interface guidelines are intended to help product designers and developers create a user interface that users will find easy to learn and use.
The user interface design principles, models, and methods described in IBM CUA publications[1,2] are generally applicable to product-specific interface aspects as well.

 Problems and Challenges of the Graphical User Interface
The idea of Common User Access (CUA, IBM calls it) is good news for both sighted and blind users.
The blind user needs to be notified of spontaneous status messages or error messages that appear somewhere on the display; maybe the top, maybe the bottom, but certainly not where the user is currently focused.
Common user access is a big plus for the computing environment, and with access to the GUI, this advantage is shared by blind users.

 From User Access Patterns to Dynamic Hypertext Linking
User access logs are examined to discover clusters of users that exhibit similar information needs; e.g., users that access similar pages.
Pages in the matched categories that have not been explored by the user and are not adjacent to the user's current position may serve as navigational hints for the user to follow.
As a user may have different information goals each time he accesses a web site, we believe it is better to model user interests on a per session basis.

When a user on a TAC port tries to open a connection, he or she will be prompted for a name and password.
Thus, access will be limited to users who have been entered into the user database by the responsible person of their organization.
Users who experience problems with using the network in general, and with terminal-to-TAC use, in particular, are encouraged to make use of this service.

 The user experience
A user model is typically described in terms of user objects, the behaviors and properties of those objects, and their interrelationships.
The difference is that OOP deals primarily with implementation aspects, while user models deal only with aspects that users are expected to experience through learning and use, such as the objects, or things, users employ to do their work.
The common user model consists of data and directories, represented as files and folders on a desktop, a clipboard along with cut/copy/paste actions, and programs, represented by Shortcuts and through data type associations.

 Cool Solutions: Common User Access Provisioning Problems
Generally, setting up user provisioning is a difficult process, and troubleshooting can become a frustration if a step is missed.
Universal Password was developed to fix this problem, and it's suggested users incorporate this into their trees.
When this happens, users may not be able to provision, or they may be able to provision through HTTP depending on the certificate error.

The Common User Access (CUA) establishes a degree of standardization that is compatible with the differences in the three environments and that supports transfer of users experiences.
CUA is based on a user-interface architecture that identifies fundamental elements of structure.
CUA specifies user-interface components and guidelines to be used by application designers, and it provides a basis for programming development tool specifications.

 Identity Management Project Roadmap
User a periodic process to extract user data from each system, search for discrepancies, and respond either by applying corrections directly or by requesting authorization for change requests.
User access to the system must be encrypted (this typically means only HTTPS should be supported as a user interface).
An identity management system can report on user access rights across systems, and these reports can be given to management to verify appropriateness, with the result being reduced system privileges where they are not needed.

 User Interface Standards: How to Evaluate
User interface standards have become the object of increasingly intense activities in recent years [Abernethy 1988; Holdaway and Bevan 1989], including work in the International Standards Organization (ISO) [Brooke et al.
For a user interface standard to increase usability in the resulting products, two conditions have to be met: The standard must specify a usable interface, and the standard must be usable by developers so that they actually build the interface according to the specifications.
The two most common spurious deviations were the centering of the line listing the valid function keys (mentioned by 11) and the use of navigational abbreviations on the screens instead of full subsystem names (mentioned by 7).

 CUA: Common User Access    (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Common User Access (CUA) is a set of guidelines for the user interface to personal computer operating systems and computer programs, developed by IBM starting in 1987 as part of their Systems Application Architecture.
Used originally in the OS/2 and Microsoft Windows operating systems, parts of the CUA standard are now implemented in programs for other operating systems, including variants of Unix.
For example, in programs written to the CUA standard, help is always summoned by pressing the F1 function key.

 The designer's model of the CUA workplace - Common User Access - Technical IBM Systems Journal - Find Articles
The Workplace Model is described as an object-oriented user interface where objects represented by icons are manipulated by selection and movement, copying and creating of other objects, and by defining their behavior to accomplish the user's desired task.
Whether the model is a plastic replica of an airplane, an exploded-parts diagram in a book, or an elaborate computer simulation model, the purpose of the model is to convey an understanding of the components that make up an object or a system and their interrelationships.
A user interface designer's job is to create a designer's model, or blueprint, of the user interface, just as an architect creates a blueprint of a house.

Although it is a survey of user interface development, it can also be used as a guide for practitioners.
Although the information is difficult to apply directly to user interface development (say, compared to a good GUI styleguide), a better understanding of the human side of the interface (the user in the user interface), human capabilities and limitations, is useful to understand why design choices are made, and how to make better choices.
